MLB Picks: After a perfect night, Eckel is back at it with another cycle of picks for Yankees vs Orioles, and Indians vs Twins

New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles, 7:05 pm, Cleveland Indians at Minnesota Twins, 7:05 pm

Mark Eckel

Keep swinging was Wednesday’s mantra. And it worked.

After a couple of sub-par days in the baseball betting world, Wednesday night produced a perfect 3-for-3 night. And not only did all three teams — the White Sox, the Nationals and the Brewers — win, all three recorded shutouts.

Thursday’s schedule is limited and also not very appealing, but let’s take a few swings.

Cleveland Indians at Minnesota Twins, 7:05 pm

Pitchers: Shane Bieber vs. Jose Berrios

Odds: Indians -106; Twins -114

New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles, 7:05 pm

Pitchers: J.A. Happ vs. John Means

Odds: Yankees -230; Orioles +195

Over/Under: 10

The Cycle

Single: I like the Twins and their ace Berrios to win at home against what could be a tired Indians team playing its first game on the road this season.

Double: It’s hard to actually bet a team at -230, so to make it a little more equitable take the Yankees to beat the Orioles and the over 10 runs in a parlay.

Triple: Let’s get crazy and do a three-team parlay with the Twins, Yanks and the over 10 runs in the Yanks/Orioles game.

Home Run: Since we’re pumping the Twins go with Josh Donaldson (+280) to go yard tonight and also look for Cincinnati’s Eugenio Suarez (+200) to hit his first home run of the season as well.
